Not sure, but I think the One from the Vault show only had two covers, both Chuck Berry. Of course that depends on how you count It Must Have Been The Roses. I think Hunter is credited with both the lyrics and music and technically that could count as a cover.

Lots of shows from 1968 were all Anthem originals I believe.

Hey BD (#2)--yeah, this came up once before, and that was the yr that was close, if not exactly right once or more, but it seemed most of the releases would have a DDHNM or LL that would muck up the "pure originals"...

And many of the shows that didn't have those songs had And We Bid You Goodnight as the encore.

1-20-68 is an example assuming we have the full show.
